I've started 3 new projects and I'm sharing them here today.
First, a special Christmas gift for a dear friend of the family.
Can't tell you who it is yet as it is a secret....ssshhhh
Here are the blocks. They are a simple square in a square. These are Jay McCarroll's fabrics. You remember he was the first winner of Project Runway.
Here is the layout in progress. I just finished the top and will share it next time - I love these colors for a man.
Here are stars that I'm english paper piecing. I was inspired by an antique quilt I saw at the New England quilt museum.
I have one more finished, and another started. They are addictive!
I'm trying to push myself to use interesting colors and patterns. I'm always so inspired by the women in Australia and they inspired my color choices.
And finally, a first look at half of my Hawaiian quilt project.
The clover white pen worked great on this! It's very fine and removes with the iron. This is a test block which I'll probably make into a doll quilt.
I will send a surprise to the first person who can guess correctly what other color fabric I'm using for my Hawaiian.
I'm hoping to Deck the Halls this weekend and do a little sewing too.
